Good kill...poor screen name(for a ls1 owner). Is the S281 the badboy of the Saleens? It is isn't it?

Nope the old s351's with the superchargers are the bad boys. Only seen one my entire life......and that thing SCOOTED.
The S281's can be either a regular old cobra motor, or a supercharged version.

my friend has a black s281 saleen supercharged. the only aftermarket part he has is an x pipe. but speed wise the car aint to impressive. he constanly loses to slightly modded ls1 z's and t/a's.

Sounds about right. They aren't really made for the straight line stuff like the new 03-04 cobras are. They are definately a road race car on the street. Good kill!

I think the SC281's are rated at 390 at the crank. It's not like racing a Terminator which puts that much to the ground or close to it stock. Plus, they don't have forged internals so ya can't turn 'em up.

S281 - SOHC (not cobra dohc) engine with boltons. ~300hp or so
S281sc - roots supercharged SOHC w/ boltons. ~380hp or so
S281-E - Twin screw supercharged SOHC w/ boltons. ~445hp or so
That's just the engine. They have a fully tricked out suspension and lots of other goodies too.
